Through Many Tribulations We Must Enter The Kingdom of God

Some believers are very surprised when they are called to suffer. They thought they would do some great thing for God, but all God permits them to do is to suffer. Just suppose you could speak with those who have gone to be with the Lord; everyone has a different story, yet everyone has a tale of suffering. One was persecuted by family and friends…another was inflicted with pain and disease, neglected by the world…another was bereaved of children…another had all these afflictions. But you will notice that though the water was deep, they all have reached the other side. Not one of them blames God for the road He led them; ‘Salvation’ is their only cry. Are there any of you, dear children, murmuring at your lot? Do not sin against God. This is the way God leads all His redeemed ones.

One Response to Through Many Tribulations We Must Enter The Kingdom of God

  1. Siew-Leng Willis says:

    According to the Scriptures, suffering is the will of God. Philippians 1 v 29 – For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake; Also, Matthew 5 v 11 – 12 -Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you. In addition, it is for our good – ‘My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.’ James 1 v 3, 4. Amen.
